REVIEW: New Pumpkin Spice Voodoo Doughnut is Gourd-Awful at Universal CityWalk Orlando

Even though it’s still technically summer, the flavors of fall have arrived at Universal CityWalk Orlando, and Voodoo Doughnut is getting in on the act with a new pumpkin doughnut!

It’s a raised yeast doughnut with a pumpkin spice filling and covered in vanilla frosting, finished with a pretzel “stem.”

It’s a pretty-looking doughnut, but unfortunately beauty is only frosting-deep here.

This doughnut was a bit of a let down, honestly. It deserves points for being massive and enough to share, but it’s pretty basic… and not the good kind of basic.

There’s a good amount of pumpkin spice filling in the center, but there’s a lot of boring fried dough to get through to find it. Once you do, it fails to impress with flavor.

If you’re a pumpkin spice fan, you will be left searching for that desired seasonal fall taste. It was a bit like pumpkin pie, but very light in flavor.

The sugary sweet vanilla frosting stood out more than the actual pumpkin flavor.

All in all, for the $3.75 it costs, you’re better off skipping this one and going for the Jack the Clown doughnut and a trip to Starbucks instead.
